Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy, Thai Massage, Swedish/Relaxation, Prenatal, Reiki

As a yoga teacher since 2008, I have had the opportunity to witness the strong connection between the mind and body and how decreasing stress with self-care positively affects an individual’s state of health and wellness.  This awareness led me to become a massage therapist and bodyworker and I have gained a deep respect for therapeutic massage and how it promotes the body’s inherent healing abilities.  I received my massage training from the New School for Massage & Bodywork in Chicago and Thai Yoga Massage training in Thailand.  My intuitive touch and heartfelt presence enables me to customize the massage to your individual needs providing an overall restorative experience that helps your body and mind to relax, unwind and heal.  My specialties include Deep Tissue and Trigger Point therapy, Thai Yoga massage and stretching, Swedish/Relaxation, Prenatal and Reiki energy work.

Five Element Acupuncture Licensed and Board Certified

I am a licensed Acupuncturist and practice “Five Element”, one of the oldest forms of acupuncture. I treat the level of the Body, Mind and Spirit. Each one of us has a unique relationship with the elements in nature; water, wood, fire, earth and metal. In perfect health, all of the elements are equally strong, each one nurturing the next, just as an ideal summer creates an abundant harvest. However, in the course of our lives, we can start to experience imbalances in one or more of the elements. Like a chain with a weak link, the whole cycle is affected and symptoms of un-ease or even dis-ease can appear. Each organ and its specific function correspond to an element.

By focusing on the root cause of imbalance, the natural flow of our system can be restored. When this happens, symptoms leave the body, balance and harmony is restored, and an overall sense of wellbeing is found. This work is not only effective for treating any health-related concern but is also helpful during life transitions…the loss of a relationship, or a loved one, a move, career change, birth of a child, etc. Many people also seek treatment to improve energy, boost their mood, help with sleep and manage anxiety. This healing removes energetic blocks and those things that stand in the way of each of us achieving our full potential.

Weekly visits are recommended the first 4-6 weeks and then treatment can be spaced out to suit the individual. While any time is a great time to begin, the change of season is ideal.
